    by George Neumayr   Barack Obama holds court these days as a great authority on the preservation of a civilized democracy. He says that nothing worries him more than “disinformation.” Never mind that he rose to power as a manipulative acolyte of Saul Alinsky, the famously amoral Chicago activist who endorsed disinformation as a tool of “community organizing.” Much of Alinsky’s activism consisted of duping ordinary Americans. Were Alinsky alive today, he would no doubt enjoy the spectacle of a former president steeped in his duplicitous methods lecturing Americans on the dangers of disinformation. Obama’s definition of “disinformation,” which he ponderously presented at a recent Chicago powwow on the subject, conforms perfectly to the Alinskyite “rules for radicals” that launched his career: “a systematic effort to either promote false information, to suppress true information, for the purpose of political gain, financial gain, enhancing power, suppressing others, targeting those you don’t like.” Obama’s monumentally hypocritical posturing about disinformation follows a familiar pattern of leftists: they gain power by trafficking in disinformation; they try and stay in power by denouncing it. Almost everything...
    The first season of “Loki” turned the Marvel Cinematic Universe on its head. By allowing the Sacred Timeline to be released from the control of the One Who Remains, multiple ramifications occurred, creating new universes, which in turn led to the creation of other universes. While Marvel Studios gets fully into the Multiverse for the remainder of Phase Four, and beyond, there are still certain doubts such as: What is really the Sacred Timeline? Was there not a Multiverse before? How could variants of Loki exist so different from the original if the ramifications were erased by the Agency of Temporal Variation? After an extensive analysis, reading the statements of those involved and seeing what we know before the UCM, all these doubts will be resolved in this article. We warn of small spoilers from the first episode of What If…? The nature of the Sacred Timeline In the first episode we hear how Miss Minutes tells the AVT legend: after the Multiversal War, the Time-Keepers arrived and mixed all the universes in a single timeline, only...
    On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) said there is an opportunity for Congress to “begin at a new baseline and stop spreading the myth of American exceptionalism” and realize that we “have to deal with the issue of white nationalism seriously in police departments, but also throughout all of America’s institutions.” Bowman said, “[T]his is a chance for all of us in Congress to sort of begin at a new baseline and stop spreading the myth of American exceptionalism and accept the fact that this is exactly who we are and this is exactly who we have been throughout our country’s history. Whenever there’s social progress, there’s white backlash, particularly from the people who believe that this needs to remain a white-dominant nation, and they are afraid of the multi-racial democracy that we are becoming. Right after we send our first African American and Jewish senators in Georgia to the Senate, right after that, the day after, we have an attack on the Capitol. This is a new baseline. And now we have to deal...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci painted a dire picture of the surge in coronavirus cases – describing what some experts consider a third wave “more as an elongated — and an exacerbation of — the original first wave,” according to a report. The total US case count has surpassed 8.7 million and the death toll rose above 225,000. Globally, more than 43 million have been sickened and more than 1.1 million have died. Fauci, the top US infectious diseases expert, made his assessment of the rising numbers of cases during Yahoo Finance’s annual All Markets Summit. He said that while the Northeast has managed to mitigate the spread, the national baseline never fell to more manageable levels — like 10,000 cases per day. Instead, it has remained high at about 20,000 cases per day. “We started to see a peak that brought us up to around 70,000 per day,” said the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “Now as we’re getting into the cold weather, we came back up again to the worst that we’ve ever...

    The U.S. is still in its first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, top infectious disease physician Dr Anthony Fauci believes.  'I look at it more as an elongated - and an exacerbation of - the original first wave,' said Dr Fauci of the current state of the pandemic in the U.S. during at the Yahoo Finance All Markets Summit.  Nationwide, the number of new coronavirus cases confirmed on each Friday and Saturday exceeded 80,000 - breaking the July record of 75,723 cases in a day, according to tracking from Johns Hopkins University.  But Dr Fauci thinks the surges we are seeing now are not a yet a second wave, but a back-end result of the U.S.'s failure to ever drive daily infections down to a sufficiently low baseline to prevent resurgences.  'We started to see a peak that brought us up to around 70,000 per day,' in July, he said.  'Now as we're getting into the cold weather, we came back up again to the worst that we've ever had, which was over 80,000 per day.' Dr Fauci said...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, disputed President Trump’s claim that the pandemic is almost over, a rare instance of open disagreement with the president. Fauci told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Friday that new case data is “disturbing,” hours after Trump said that the United States is “rounding the corner.” “I’m sorry, but I have to disagree with that, because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned, the statistics, Andrea, they’re disturbing,” Fauci said. “We’re plateauing at around 40,000 cases a day, and the deaths are around 1,000.” The U.S. has made significant progress since July, when new daily coronavirus cases often exceeded 60,000, but state health officials are still reporting a high level of new infections and deaths. “When you have a baseline of infections that are 40,000 per day and you have threats of increased test positivity in certain regions of the country, such as the Dakotas and Montana and places like that ... you don’t want to start off already with a baseline that’s so high,” he...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci said he hopes for a sharp reduction in daily COVID-19 cases in the United States before the flu season arrives. "We’re right around 40,000 new (daily) cases," he said Wednesday on MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports. "That’s an unacceptably high baseline. We’ve got to get it down. I would like to see it 10,000 or less. Hopefully less." The nation's leading expert on infectious diseases also cautioned people to avoid large gatherings and not neglect public health guidelines during Labor Day weekend to avoid another surge of cases similar to those seen after other holiday weekends. "We know from prior experience that when you get into holiday weekends, the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, there is a tendency of people to be careless somewhat with regard to the public health measures that we keep recommending over and over again," he said. "So, I really want to use this opportunity almost to have a plea to the people in this country to realize that we really still need to get our arms around this and to suppress these types...
    Very few players in the NBA go on to play in their 40s. The most recent one was Vince Carter. Drafted in 1998, Carter played in the NBA for 22 years, and just retired this season. When he played for the Atlanta Hawks this season, he became the third-oldest player to ever play in the league. Recently he made an appearance on ESPN’s Get Up alongside former coach David Fizdale. Carter played under Fizdale during his days at Memphis. When Fizdale was asked to share a moment from Carter’s time at the Grizzlies, he recollected Carter’s 360 layup against the Raptors from 2017. “I run a drop play to him,” Fizdale said. “Zebo dropped it to (Carter). This guy spins baseline and does a 360° the wrong way. He just made me feel better about my age and there’s some kind of hope for older guys. I was just blown away when he did it.” Vince Carter: Half Man, Half Amazing Carter then explained how he calculated the move to beat the defender. “When you play the game long...
    Ethereum contributes to the Coca-Cola delivery process The Coke One North America (CONA), an IT company dedicated to the packaging of The Coca-Cola Company in North America, will use the Baseline Protocol to improve the supply chain of the soda maker. The Baseline Protocol is an open source project intended for companies to enable them to carry out transactions in a more efficient and secure manner, all based on Ethereum (ETH). According to the announcement, this is not the first time that Coca-Cola products have flirted with blockchain. In 2019, CONA would have adopted Hyperledger Fabric for the management of franchise companies specializing in packaging. This would have increased transparency in exchanges between organizations and strengthened the performance of the supply chain. Today, CONA’s ambition is to extend the use of blockchain to a wider horizon. To do this, the company called on Provide and UniBright, two companies specialized respectively in the development and integration of blockchain solutions. ????

    A former World Health Organization doctor who helped eradicate smallpox says the the global fight against COVID-19 will carry on for at least the next four years as the virus moves from one hotspot to the next.  Dr Larry Brilliant, an epidemiologist from California, told USA TODAY that the next few years would not be 'all doom and gloom' because effective vaccines will emerge.  'We will still be chasing the virus four years from now. But it won't be like (today),' Brilliant said.  'It will be like the smallpox eradication program. The polio eradication program. Having yellow fever in some countries and not in others.  'We're in for a bad and rocky ride.'  Dr Larry Brilliant, an epidemiologist from California who was among the WHO team who fought the eradication of smallpox in the 1970s, says the the global fight against COVID-19 will carry on for at least the next four years Dr Brilliant, who was among the WHO team who fought the eradication of smallpox in the 1970s, now chairs the Ending Pandemics advisory board.  He said the US was likely...
    The nation's top infectious disease expert urged caution to those eager to get back to normal, warning that the state of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States is "really not good." Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a Facebook Live interview on Monday that the U.S. is still "knee-deep" in dealing with the first wave of coronavirus infections that began in early March. "We are still knee-deep in the first wave of this," he told National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins. "And I would say, this would not be considered a wave. It was a surge or a resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline." Case numbers in the country have skyrocketed in recent weeks, particularly across the South, as states increase testing measures, and several major cities, including Houston, are struggling to cope with an influx of new patients. Fauci warned that while European nations have more or less mitigated the seriousness of the outbreak, the U.S. is still attempting to contain the first...
